The Importance of Defensive Driving

0 Comment

People often don’t do what you expect them to. This is particularly true when driving. Driving speeds are greater than they ever were before, and unfortunately drivers have to deal with more distractions, safety hazards, and basic driving errors than ever before.

Defensive driving teaches the person behind the wheel how to anticipate and react correctly to possible problems on the road. It poses the “what if” question to drivers. For example: what if a child runs across the road in front of you; what if a driver around you is zigzagging in and out of lanes; what if the car in front of you slams on its brakes?

Learning defensive driving teaches you how to be aware of the leading causes of accidents and how to avoid them. It is useful for any driver, but is particularly useful for those who operate public vehicles and those who spend a great deal of time on the road, such as truck drivers and interstate motorists.

Even if you consider yourself to be a good driver, you can benefit from the instruction a defensive driving course provides – it will definitely make you a safer driver.
